New Year’s resolutions – up your security game with myQ

Some New Year’s resolutions are hard to keep, but others are easy – with the right tools!

Your garage is often an entry point to your home, holding prized possessions such as the family car, expensive power tools, bikes and more. However, the garage is often overlooked when thinking about home security.

Here are a few ways you can up your security game in 2021 with Merlin.

myQ for peace of mind

Merlin’s myQ technology gives you the power to monitor and control your garage door anywhere, anytime from your smartphone, tablet or Apple Watch.

Have you ever been halfway to work and realised that you’re not sure if you left the garage door open? The myQ App ensures you are always in control. You can check if you left the garage door open and close it if you did.

The myQ App sends real-time alerts and notifications when the garage door is opened, closed or left up for a period of time. It also has a scheduling feature so the garage door can be set to shut at a certain time, meaning you can be confident it’s closed when you leave for work or hop into bed.

What else can I do to secure my garage?

For New Zealanders with garage door openers and accessories from other manufacturers, it is important to review the make, model and age of the garage door products you have in your home.

Prior to 1993, some remotes used DIP switches which were more limited and meant that a signal could potentially be received by others in the area; allowing them to open the garage door.

Merlin is a trusted brand of premium garage door openers and accessories and all Merlin remotes are equipped with Security+2.0 technology to provide the highest level of security available in the market.

Security+ 2.0 ensures the garage door remote communicates on multiple frequencies and uses a unique code every time the button is pressed; selecting one combination from 100 billion encrypted rolling codes.

This enhanced radio technology also selects the strongest frequency every time, virtually eliminating interference from other devices.

Merlin encourages New Zealanders with garage doors to invest in a secure, safe and high quality garage door opener and only use genuine accessories, to ensure the safety and security of their homes and loved ones.

Skip the diets this year and choose a resolution you can actually stick to!
